Pursuant to the Order of April 6, 2020, from the Supreme Court of Georgia, the statewide Judicial Emergency has been extended until May 13. As such, any court date you have scheduled before May 13, 2020, is likely to be rescheduled.
For potential clients who would prefer to avoid in-person consultations, we are offering consultations by telephone or video conference.
For current clients of the firm with pending court dates before May 13, please call or email us for an update. We will do our best to keep you informed, but many clerk and prosecutor offices are working with limited hours and staff.
City of Paragould Proposes Suspicionless Stops By Armed SWAT Agents
Someone had better talk some sense into this guy before he bankrupts the city with wrongful arrest lawsuits
In Georgia, there are three "tiers" of police encounters. Encounter, detention, and arrest. You are free to walk away from a police encounter. If the police officer detains you (prevents your movement), that is second tier. The final tier is arrest. Unlawfully elevating an encounter to a second or thir tier event can lead to evidence and charges being dismissed.
